A partnership between Social-storage service Dropio and Yahoo, Dropio’s application will allow Yahoo Mail users to send attachments up to 100 MB in size. Yahoo Mail users can access the Attach Large Files app from the Applications Box in the lower left-hand corner of their Yahoo! Mail inbox and using the app is simple:
- Click “Attach Large Files” — this brings you to the drop.io welcome page
- Next click “Select Files” — add as many files from your computer as you want up to 100MB. You’ll recognize drop.io’s distinct upload interface that displays the queued files, their file size and allows you to cancel any of them either before or during upload.
- Next click “Upload and Compose Email” – users are brought to a new email, populated with thumbnails and links to view and download the attachments.
When your recipient opens the email, they have the option to click to view and download individual files, or the whole group.
The application allows people to save previously sent groups of attached files that can later be viewed or resent. It also integrates several useful drop.io functions like voicemail and conference calling.
The Attach Large Files app was built entirely on drop.io’s robust and open API. We are excited to see our API continue to be used as a springboard for other platforms to leverage drop.io’s powerful, real-time file sharing, collaboration and conversion engine to help power content sharing in the context of communication platforms.
